Working in sync with my SO Malcolm Collins, I operate a number of companies, invest in startups, regularly lecture on the topic of management techniques (including at Stanford GSB, Harvard, and Carnegie Mellon), and am a bestselling author (on Kindle).
The lion's share of my focus is on the Collins Institute for Gifted Youth, which is working on a new model of at-home or boarding education optimized for self-motivated students who thrive when given freedom. It applies a PhD-level attitude toward knowledge acquisition to K-12 education through a first-principles approach.
Other orgs I operate and have operated include: A hybrid corporate travel management company and wholesaler with offices in Philadelphia and Lima, Peru that specializes in entertainment and production travel; ArtCorgi.com (a 500 Startups-funded art marketplace I co-founded); and the Pragmatist Foundation (a non-profit dedicated to helping the world think more pragmatically).
I'm keen to speak with anyone passionate about education, culture, governance, and education reform.
